Purchased at a gas station in the middle so nowhere driving from Tennessee to Florida. From bottle, poured into tulip.


A: Orangey-brown. Some'd call it copper, but I wouldn't go that far.


A: Grape skin and peachy aromas. Tartness with maltiness. Some stereotypical IPA pineiness and resininess as well.



T: A well balanced piney/hoppy IPA. Good bite and lingering flavors. Not overly complex or sweet or bitter. Nectarine/peach fruit flavors at the forefront, with a clean pine/resin followthru.



M: Perfect carbonation and mouthfeel. Crisp and perfect to accompany a greasy burger and fries or steak.



O: I'd rate this beer among the best lighter IPAs out there, including Bell's Two Hearted (a personal favorite). Not an exacted replica with the all the yummy grapefruitiness of 2<3'd that I love, but this one definitely hits the spot.

Local tap at Fox and Hounds in Raleigh.
Pours slightly hazy, coppery orange with a tight head. Foam fades bur doesn't disappear, thin lace.
Smell is of citrusy hops, very nice.
Taste has some biscuit malt, then lots of citrus herbal hops.
This beer has a medium body and a slightly sticky mouth feel. Good level of carbonation makes it easy to drink.
Overall, this is a good A IPA with a nice balance between the malt and hops.

This is a nice IPA that is easy to drink (for an IPA that is). I really enjoyed it as a quick beer, but I wouldn't recommend it for someone who was in want of something more complex. Tastes great without being bland.
